. Research Field

Agricultural Resource Economics and Environmental Management / Sustainable Development in Rural Areas Planning and Evaluation

Professor Jiang Zhide and his team  is committed to long-term research economic incentive approaches to improve the agricultural ecological environment. He believed that since the ecological and environmental problems is the consequences of improper human economic activities, by improving the existing economic system must be able to find a mechanism to reduce or eliminate that negative effect. We should take advantage of people's profit nature, combined with the normal functioning of market mechanisms to achieve proper ecological benefits at the same time to obtain economic benefits.

Recent research interests

(1) Study on Agricultural Ecological Economical Joint Production. Using the old economics concept joint production, we have explored the agriculture eco-economical coupling effects and ecological compensation mechanism in the area of Returning Farmland to Forest in Loess Plateau. We intend to quantitative accounting ecotype joint product value, then discuss the mechanism related properties, types, intensity and encourage on producers’ joint production in agricultural activities.

(2) Exploration on Low Carbon Development Mechanism and Pattern of Agriculture. In the context of international action to address agricultural climate change, trying to use carbon measurement methodology for quantitative calculation of comprehensive carbon effect of typical household production, and to explore the farmers' low carbon production mode and incentive problems. The use of the market mechanism to realize farmers ecological carbon interests, on the basis of this, research and design possible solutions to promote the development of low carbon agriculture.

(3) Practice on Modern Ecological Farm Planning and Organic Agricultural Development. Through the rural land planning and landscape reconstruction, combined with funding and technical intervention, making use of modern enterprise management system to drive dispersed farmers to meet market demand with safety food, vigorously develop ecological farms and organic agricultural products, remodeling effective way for ecological agriculture in which the ecological, economic and social value could be reconstructed.
